Forgiven Much, We Are to Forgive Much

  • 2012 3 Aug
Forgiven Much, We Are to Forgive Much

The story of the woman who poured perfume on Jesus’ feet is a poignant story of a woman who served Jesus (Luke 7:38). After she is criticized for her use of costly perfume on Jesus’ feet, Jesus reminds Simon Peter that since we have been forgiven much, and subsequently we are to forgive others. We are to extend love to others, regardless of what they have done to us.
